Hear what parents are saying about The CDC!
For Working Moms
As a working mother, few things can distract you more than worrying about the wellbeing of your children while you are at work. Thankfully, I have never had this problem since my kids have been at CDC. I enrolled both my girls at CDC well before they were born at the recommendation of friends, and it was one of the best decisions I’ve made about their care. The staff is warm and personable, the facility is safe and the teachers are amazing! I refer to them as “their other Mamas.” When I drop off my girls in the morning I know I don’t have to worry about whether they are learning, playing, safe or happy until I pick them up again at the end of the day.
The Only Center For All Our Children
Both of my boys have been at CDC since they were 12 weeks old and have been through all of the programs including Pre-K, Summer Sensation, and Be Cool After School. I can't say how much they have enjoyed being there. They have made so many friends over the years. Every time I walk through the door I feel so at home. I love walking in and everybody you pass tells you "Good morning" and when you leave it is always "Have a good day!". I can't say enough about the memories we've made there and all of the people that we've developed relationships with. We feel like we are part of the family there and highly recommend it to anyone who is looking for a loving, caring, and learning environment for their children.
Not Just Another Daycare
CDC is not just a day care...it is a family. It is easy to drop off the twins each morning, knowing they will be surrounded by so much love and knowledge.
Recommended By A Friend
We have been bringing our two year old son Hank to the CDC since he was ten weeks old. We initially chose this day care because of a friend's recommendation, and I am so glad that we listened! As a first time mom, I was nervous about leaving my baby with strangers, but I quickly realized that Hank was in excellent hands with the staff at CDC. Now that he is in a toddler classroom, he is learning something new every day. I know my baby is safe, happy and well cared for while I am at work, and there is nothing more important to me than that. Thank you to all of the staff at CDC who greet us by name each morning. We love being a part of the CDC family!
Exceeded Our Expectations
Seven years ago when we found out we were expecting our first child we were faced with the reality that daycare would absolutely be a part of our daily life. It's a scary thought to consider handing over the care of your child for more than 8 hours every workday. We asked around for recommendations among our friends and co-workers and the response was overwhelming. Everyone told us we needed to check out FUMC's Child DevelopmentCenter. 7 years & 2 children later we feel so Blessed to be a part of the CDC family. They have met and exceeded our every expectation. We assumed the daycare would keep our children safe and help teach them basic developmental skills, but what we've realized is that we have a true partner in raising confident, loving children. It's hard to put into words what a relief it is to feel that the person in charge of your child's care truly loves them. In addition to helping us teach them how to love and be loved we are so pleased with the academic progress we've seen in both children. From the first infant class to our son's Pre-K class; we have been impressed with the level of education we've experienced. We consider CDC a "school" and the staff truly are teachers. I am certain CDC is the main reason our son's transition to Kindergarten was so smooth! We are forever thankful for the staff at Child Development Center and would recommend the center to all.
Prepared Our Children For Multiple Levels
Three of our children have grown up in the Gertrude Remmel Butler Child Development Center (CDC) and now that our oldest is in the public school system, we see how well the CDC prepared him on multiple levels: education, social skills, emotional intelligence, etc. This organization has proven to our family time and time again that they don’t just work with the children, they also work with the parents on a professional and personal basis. The CDC is truly a testament to “Faith, Hope and Love.”
